    Are these little ones both pullets? And are they Buff Orps? They were sold to me as Buff Orps but one has yellow feet and one has white feet? Yelllow foot one is smaller but they may be a day or two apart in age.

    Thank you!

    Orpingtons should not have yellow feet. However if they came from some common Hatchery you very well could get that. I think they both look like pullets.

    I can't help with gender but the yellow legged one might be a buff rock. They have a lot of the same great qualities as a buff orp; maybe just a bit smaller. Pretty chickies! [​IMG]

    You can't be quite sure till they're full grown, but at this point, they both look like hens [​IMG]
